Pippa creates a visual world through her paintings, drawings and prints, in which she explores human connection, pain and hope. Her work enables an unpicking of the complexities, and nuances of her own healing from deep hurts. Whilst exploring the wider themes of human destruction and nature's persistent reclamation and recovery of our ravagin.
Using her imagination Pippa draws and paints figures, greeting them on the page as she creates. These sides of self encounter others amongst vibrant landscapes, inspired by the Celtic Rainforest. A place that is both important to the artist and environmentally significant. A vanishing, sacred place to be protected.
